In his new role, Accardi will continue to report to Brian L. Hessel, chief operating officer, chief risk officer and co-founder of GCA.

Paul is a very talented financial professional who continues to enhance the value of our organization. We look forward to his continued contributions towards the success of GCA.”
Ahead of Accardi’s promotion, GCA hired Frank T. Pizzo as assistant controller in May. Pizzo joined GCA from Ernst & Young, where he was an asset management senior associate in its financial services office.
